Ballpark Blueprint: Family FunDay Sundays

FamilyFunDay.JPGAs the 2011 regular season nears, we’ll be highlighting new features and activities at Kauffman Stadium in a series entitled “Ballpark Blueprint”.

Our first “Ballpark Blueprint” is about “Family FunDay Sundays”. Sunday home games in 2011 will feature live entertainment and family-focused activities in the Outfield Experience!

Activities include:

Autograph Afternoons:  Royals Alumni will sign autographs on April 17, June 5, July 10 and September 4.

Entertainment on the All-Star Barbeque Stage:  Have some pre-game barbeque while watching a great show!  Scheduled acts include “In the Air”, a juggling group on April 17 and “Spaghetti Eddie” on July 10.

KidsFest (July 10 vs. Detroit):  Ok, kids, it’s time to test out your cosmic powers!  The first 8,000 kids, 14 and under, will receive a Royals Superhero Cape at the gate from U.S. Toys.  Once you have your cape on, walk on over to the Outfield Experience and add to your superhero look by visiting one of the face painters that will be on hand!  Balloon artists and a juggling stilt walker will also add to the fun of KidsFest. 

Christmas Eve in July (July 24 vs. Tampa Bay):  Cool off from the hot summer weather with Christmas Eve in July!  Santa and Chilly the Penguin will be on hand.  The first 10,000 fans will receive a Royals Snow Globe, presented by the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Promotional Giveaways:  In addition to the superhero cape and the snow globe, three other Family FunDay Sundays include a great giveaway!  On Mother’s Day (May 8 vs. Oakland), the first 10,000 ladies will receive a tote bag from Hy-Vee.  On June 5, K.C. welcomes the Minnesota Twins.  The first 8,000 kids, 14 and under, will receive a Royals pillow case!  And on August 7, the first 8,000 kids will take home a batting helmet.

All Day Play Pass:  For just $10, you can have unlimited access to Outfield Experience activities!  Take your swings at the U.S Toy Little K or the batting cages, test your speed at the base run or speed pitch and enjoy unlimited rounds of mini-golf!  And once you need to sit down and rest, you can take a few rides on the Kauffman Stadium Carousel!

We look forward to seeing your family at our Family FunDay Sundays in 2011!  For a full listing of 2011 promotions, visit
